Oil Minister Mohammad Abdulatif Al Fares, Finance Minister Khalifa Hamade and Foreign Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nasser Al Sabah were reappointed in the new Cabinet.

“The coming period requires cooperation with the legislative authority and the meetings brought points of view closer together,” KUNA quoted Sheikh Sabah as saying.

He stressed the need for agreeing a package of legislation, resolving “some political files” and uniting efforts to tackle “financial and administrative corruption” whether inside or outside the government apparatus, it added.
